The clean, sleek appearance of these slate-like tiles offers enormous kerb appeal. These tiles are only 18mm thick, and laid with a special broken-bond laying technique, unlike standard interlocking tiles.

With only 9.7 tiles per square metre, Edgemere is a single lap solution, that provides a quicker and easier to install option against natural and fibre cement slates, and is compatible with our full range of ventilation and dry fix systems. With great performance at pitches as low as 17.5°, Edgemere is versatile enough to be used on a wide range of roof types.
All of our concrete interlocking tiles can achieve an 'A+' rating (which has the lowest environmental impact) in the Building Research Establishment's Green Guide to Specification. 

Accreditation to the BES 6001 framework standard for 'Responsible Sourcing' means that projects using our concrete interlocking slates can now achieve extra credits under BREEAM and the Home Quality Mark (HQM).

*Please note* The British Standard for Slating and Tiling (BS 5534) has recently been updated, making significant changes to tile fixing requirements. To ensure that your roof is compliant to the new standard, our fixing specification service is available.
